People sometimes envision a hypothetical scenario. After a funeral family members gather in private and someone very close to the deceased somberly reads the last will.
This person will distribute inheritances and everything is settled.
The Probate Process
In fact the above is a myth. The estate must pass through the process of probate before anyone will receive an inheritance.
During this process the executor or executrix conducts business on behalf of the estate. Depending on the complexity of the overall situation this can take varying amounts of time.
